Nine-Year-Old Skydiver Teaches Us About Life - Nine-year-old Chicago native, Kaleigh, takes a few minutes out her EXTREME schedule to teach us a lil about living in the present, choosing experiences over material objects, aerodynamics and how to “be happy and play hard”. What a champ!
Following a central theme based around music and guitar lullabies, Bobo Choses has produced lots of comfy-cozy, “oversized”, fall coloured pieces with whimsical prints of trees, instruments, rain drops, etc.
Our favourite new addition to Bobo Choses’ collections, the Thick Twill School Bag, is great for young kids attending school for the first time in fall. It’s small but sturdy and prefect for small books, pencil crayons and lil treasures.

SUPRA Backpacks - With the new school year approaching quickly, it’s time to start picking out new gear for the lil guys. Backpacks are without a doubt the second most defining piece, after sneakers of course, of your kids back-to-school look and so, it is very important to pick one that suits personality.
The new SUPRA backpacks are simple, elegant and built to last. There is lots storage options, including a laptop sleeve, and while it’s big enough for a sleepover, it’s also small enough for day to day use. It also includes skate straps on the front so your kids can skate to school or be ready for those after school skate sessions.
Victor Cruz for Foot Locker Kids - In this new Foot Locker Kids commercial, Victor Cruz, a New York Giants wide receiver, befriends Scott, a cool kid that is sad that after their 30 seconds of commercial time together they will no longer be friends. Cruz decides the best thing to do is “Make it Count” and so the two go on several quick adventures before Scott gets the boot. Funny, witty and well done; this is great advertisement.
Book-Inspired Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Flavors - For a less serious Friday post, check out Philadelphia-based publishing company, Quirk Books’, series of fake Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavors based on classic books.

Who agrees that Ben & Jerry’s should absolutely make this happen!?
adidas Kids Springblade - If your kids are looking for an explosive reaction on any surface, the new Springblade introduced in-stores today by adidas might be the running shoes they need.
The adidas Spingblade’s newly engineered outsole features 16 forward angled blades made of a high-tech polymer. These blades absorb energy when loaded and unleash it on the launch.The highly elastic like blades react quickly and efficiently to every movement without disrupting the runners regular flow.
The Techfit construction on the upper part of the shoe was engineered for a natural, yet flexible support system while still locking the foot and helping in delivering the energy returned from the springy outsole.
All in all the new Springblade, available in Black and Red for kids, is a really neat new take on performance running shoes. Pretty impressive if I do say.

As much as we like Ruff & Huddle’s AW13 collection of well designed sweats and graphic tees, the young brand’s killer jackets are what really caught our eye.
We love R&H’s classic college Varsity jacket with its epic stitched lion motif and the ‘ROAR’ applique on the front. Their M1 bomber jacket is also pretty impressive. The tattoo like patches really give it an edge that your boys will totally love.
